Distracted

US Eyes

What good do rights and constitutional laws do when a vast majority of U.S. Citizens choose to live most of (if not all of) their lives following a redundant routine from about the age of 5, with only slight variations of differences between certain age groups.

An alarm goes off, you wash your face and grab something for breakfast or opt out of food and go to your nearest Starbucks for a cup of Joe. Shortly following this comes work or school (sometimes both) where you will spend at least 8 hours of your day (for roughly about 12 standard school years). Some of us have the pleasure of working at a job that fulfills our passions and desires, (but most of us don’t) or you are stuck somewhere for the money, hoping on  daily basis to make ends meet.

I feel that here is where the social divide occurs; people want to base judgments off of titles (i.e.being a doctor in today’s time = success) when in alternating thought, judgments should be based off of what we do. A title could be just that! We have all had an experience when someone with a renowned title has failed to meet your expectations, whether it had been a doctor, teacher, or engineer, one must subdue the urge to cast judgements based off of titles/ financial status. This is part of the American problem…

Transcending back to my preliminary point, once work/ school are over with for the day, Americans typically go home, shower, eat, and watch t.v. (or browse social media sites). We do this until our bodies have had enough and urge us to go to sleep, only to wake up and do the exact same thing. Although at surface this seems like a harmless way to live, I beg to differ. It’s almost like our life has become quite opposite, we claim to be alive and well, yet all the while, humanities morality is screaming out for a savior. 

Americans have not only began this downward spiral of solitude and neglect, but they are also breeding this unfortunate habit to their children, only to worsen each generation at a greater magnitude every time. Be mindful that I am not claiming every American to live this way, surely there are several who have “awaken” to this truth (like me), but that is only good enough for a sparse moment in time. What good does being awake do if you are not trying to better our future, if there is never an attempt to make a change; Those that are awaken shall not be for too long, a complacent mind is almost as bad as a clueless one.

A more plausible offense is to be awake, but stricken by distraction! Although being distracted alludes one to assume that the ability is present to shut off/turn on this feature, it is not a simplistic ability. The whole ideology around American culture sets American’s up to essentially NOT LIVE, to be stagnant, to not question/wander. Everything is handed over to us now (in a sense) in exchange for the worst element in the American Economy, money.

We are manipulated into thinking and placing focus on money, it is the answer to all of our problems, with it, we can obtain food, water, medicine, shelter, therapy, and almost anything else one’s heart desires. We are not willing to fight or put in the work anymore for what REALLY matters like equality, freedom, the TRUTH. We are almost forced to be reliant on the economy, forced into bullshit labor only to still never feel satisfied because we are not fulfilling our will’s goal.

We are distracted!

Obsessing over minute instances that solely affect key people around us, closing off our mind to the rest of the world, failing to embrace other cultures and morals. Instead, we are taught to “have the London look”, or dress in designer wear. We spend our whole “life” making money, only to spend it on irrelevant items and continue enforcing this faulted and unfair cycle of destruction.

Destruction of not only the “American Dream”, but destruction of humanity. Stop being distracted, WAKE UP!

Falsum Actualitatis (False Reality)

eagle-hand

On a daily basis, humans are exposed to a series of false actualities, a series that is stuck on repeat. Although those who are fortunate enough to have able-bodied corpses contain all the power to turn this series off, they don’t. Instead, we become engulfed into this series, obsessed with trying to make it change or differ from one day to the next. We become compulsive to an extent of complacency, we trick ourselves into thinking we are “trying something new”, when in actuality we are not. 

Almost every being can relate to the example I am about to declare, maybe not wholly, but to an extent. One might choose to shorten/ lengthen their hair in hopes of a “different look”, although the goal is attained, it is only at the mere surface. In actuality, the hair is still the exact same hair, just now is it projecting a new perspective. In life, their is a strife for new, although we are too busy being fooled into self generated fallacies, never further from the “new”.

What does it take, then you ponder, to be new again? To create not a new perspective, but undergo a transformation into someone who is unrecognizable to any other being that previously knew of your former existence? Here I offer you, fellow Truth seeker, an conjecture: So long as one has made any sort of impact on someone else, they are forever un-erasable. Only with time can this erratic problem be sufficed, one mustn’t spontaneously or periodically under go physical changes (i.e. the haircut example previously mentioned) rather, they must work internally. One must become an cenobite, separating himself from society in order to cleanse societal woes, trends, problems, and characters from his memory.

After doing so, re-birth may begin. No longer will you feel the chains of society on your back, for you would have no consciences of what society considers to be relevant. You will now be on another level so to say, compared to all others who have not taken the time and patience to be re born into a society that is clean and pure, and die in one that has been run into the ground since the late 20th century.

Although at first, my wonderings may lead one to believe that I am against togetherness, against being united, this is false. We can only move closer to unity once we have united our mind and bodies individually. If you are constantly stuck in the series that is playing called “life”with no way of viewing issues from an outside perspective, stagnicity will be your only end result. Once all of humanity has taken the time to do this, or even half of the amount of countries we have on planet earth, only then I truly believe would we see a positive re birth of a society, one that is truly free. 

From a philosophical historian’s outlook, I am in abhorrence to this plain idea, the idea of being a total ignoramus towards reality. Not only has the American spirit began to dwindle, but it is also in the process of a shift, one to woe! This country will soon be led by a man that has been compared to the likes of Hitler, Putin, and the Anti-Christ… to a stagnant society, there is no fault in this…

 “Nothing will change, this happens every four years!” This phrase has been tossed around a great deal with intent for others to feel a sense of relief.. most simple minded humans would gain relief from this phrase, to those who are Truth seekers, you will be terrified by this complacency. No, you will not be surprised, for you have seen this country experience a complete dismantle of what was once a cherished and valued objectivity: freedom, the American Dream. 

My sanguineness is for this generation, if not future ones, to break this routine, this broken record, this lie. As an American citizen, I feel the need to not keep the “American Dream” alive, but in fact, to kill it. Kill and re-birth this nation, create an utopian society where no man was ever judged by their race, language, god, belief, or wealth. We are now entering an era where togetherness is needed more than ever, all odds are against us (citizens) as they always have been. Lets not be stagnant any longer! Let us rise and exemplify our voices that countless men & women died for us to have; Let their deaths not be in vain.

Satisfaction

flowers-blog

To make things crystal, I will begin with stating: Sat-is-fied (contended; pleased). Why is there no attachment of time to this definition? Is satisfaction directed to only be momentarily and vanishing? Why is it internalized as finite automatically?

I once presumed that this word meant an ever lasting feeling of pleasure and contentment, until I began to realize that truly staying satisfied seems next to impossible. The human will is hungry and determined to strive, if one allows their mind/body to realize their wills’ needs, then one will be a being of success and leisure. Money will not be an object of concern, more of a mere tedious manipulation of sorrow and pain used to purchase swanky and/or vital supplies.

Love would be perfect and whole, no yearn for new, unknown, mystery… just strife for truth and contentment… one would feel the attainability of Love.

Family would be of no judgement, disappointment, or greed for everyone would be satisfied eternally where the cards currently lay. We would know how to lead the continuation in our lives without causing disease and distress onto others.

Work would always be a wonder of nirvana and euphoria, orgasmicly feeling a sense of change, inspiration, and pride throughout each and every moment spent within this area of life.

Friends would be of no constitute or necessity, they would truly be present and available for you and only you. No want for attention, information, or love would be desired for it would already be present.

I conclude with a proposition, must we as humanity create a new “word” for longterm pleasure and contentment?

Shall that word be unrealistic?

Shan’t it be Now?

Seasons: An Insight on Human Relations

seasons

When two people decide to experience the journey of life as a unit, they soon come to find that much like the Earth, they too experience seasons. Everyone has a favorite season, as well as one that is disliked… but how much control do we have on the seasons of our life compared to the seasons of the Earth?

One can not claim that they have control over the planet’s seasons, these are produced by methods beyond our comprehension (although science tries to personify the truth) as well as beyond our control. Though we can not control these seasons created by the planet, we can however prepare for them, adapt. Adaptation is not done quickly, rather over long periods of time (in relation to evolution), and is a vital point for our survival. Now that we have placed attention of the obvious, are there any relations to the seasons we can’t control, to those we can (involving each other, not the Earth)?

We have terms in today’s society that I will use in order to have you fully conceptualize the thesis at hand. Some if these will include Divorce, Marriage, Death, Birth, and Happiness. Yes, I am already aware that we as beings have different interpretations of these words, but for the sake of my work, only place your mind in the frame I am generating before you.

Spring is a time for creation and beginnings (i.e Birth), humans are pressured to feel the need to create future generations. Most of us are raised that in order to achieve the “American Dream” one must have two kids, a home, and a golden retriever. This is why most people make the conscience decision to have children. Although there are instances where the pregnancy is not planned, and can be eliminated, for the sake of my argument we will only discuss those that are planned. Why humans solely decided to reproduce may vary, but for the general portion of it, children are supposed to fill your lives with happiness and meaning. This is generally a “happy” season filled with anticipation and creation, not many people will claim to be depressed during spring time.

Summer, in my opinion, is almost a continuation of Spring. It is the growing stage, rather than the birth. During this season, people may experience exhaust as well as anxiety for what is next (Fall). This is a season where the couple seems to disagree more often than not, as well as even question if this is what they want any more. Fall does not seem to make things any better, during this time period, we are experiencing not only negative experiences with nature (i.e trees loosing leafs) but also with one another. After enduring a long summer, the happy times that once occurred during the Spring seem farther away than ever, and it becomes harder for two to make it through. For those who are however lucky enough to prosper through Fall, Winter will definitely be the season of Death. By death, I do not mean someone ending up in a casket, rather more like the death of a relationship, and end.

Not all ends are definite, sometimes a couple decides to experience another year together, another round of seasons. The problem with not knowing when to call it quicks is particularly troublesome. As years spent with another continue onwards, seasons begin to grow dimmer, Spring becomes less “happy” and Winter doesn’t seem like the only era drenched in sadness. Eventually, one will grow tiresome of enduring these seasons with another being that instead of making the hardship better, they make it worse. This is where divorce occurs, a final end to the promise of taking on seasons together.

Yes, divorce is an end to the routine you once knew, but what happens when you meet someone else that sparks an interest in you? Are you then thrown into another round of seasons, just with a new partner? Will the outcome be the same? Will these seasons be separated by months, or could one even argue that we can experience seasons from day to day?

How much control do we have on the seasons of beings? Is it absurd to accept that after years together, two people can accept an end, and look forward to a new beginning without you?

The “Kindness” of Your Heart

 

The human body has several body parts which instantaneously function like a symphony in spirit of sustaining what we call “life”. In this case, by “life” I am simply referring to the act of breathing, having the ability to wake up healthy each day. There are an uncountable amount of ways to view this term “life”, therefore I bare you my meaning to cease all basphomy. At this point, I will only speak of one instrument in the symphony, the human heart.

I am no scientist, nor do I even bother familiarizing myself with scientific-al rambles; I say rambles because I strongly view science as an empty opinion. It does nothing but states/studies the processnever will it conclude or inform one about the actuality of any beginning!

“This almost endless task the natural sciences make easier by means of abstractoions, drawing together what is general in order to separate what is particular.”                                                                                                               – Schopenhauer

I will resist the urge to speak more about this matter and storage it for a latter moment.

Do not judge or falsely accuse me when I speak of the heart, for I am instilling this segment now to clear any misconceptualities. As I speak of the heart, I am stating and objectifying it through my will; I am open to discussions, not objections.

It shall cause no surprise to hear that your heart is one of the key instruments in sustaining life, what intrigues me ever more though, is what has not been contemplated or studied… your heart’s amount of “kindness”. Emotion is a precarious concept, it can be felt, faked, or faulted, nonetheless, it is an attribute that we, beings, posses. There exists a saying that I hear quite frequently, “Do it out of the kindness of your heart.” I would like you, fellow Truth Seeker, to re-examine this saying once more. This quote is imposing onto the heart a plurality–> being not only is it an organ which sustains life, but it is also capable of showing/creating acts of kindness.

Kindness is an emotion, an emotions is felt, not through touch… but through your mind.  It is a finite misconception that a heart is what “produces” these emotions, this is not the case; it is in fact, your mind. Just as the mind produces pleasure, pain, complacency; this is not the heart’s duty. I do not blame thee though for possessing this idea vice-verse, we are unfortunately taught several fallacies in our young public educational career which we carry on throughout our time on Earth. If one ceases to push pass this “object” in search of true will, then one will unfortunately end up in a solitude of blindness ( i.e. Plato’s Cave; for those who I have lost in my writing). For one to claim that “an act of kindness” can come from your heart irks me, it sounds incoherent, we are placing onto an object a power that it does not posses! For arguments sake, I will quite briefly ponder this conception…. of an “act of kindness.”

How is such an act even measurable? How can one truly know infinitely if another being is acting out of kindness (remember fellow Truth Seeker, we are placing such an implausible idea on the stand for it’s sentencing; we must not shut out this conception completely without analyzing it for ourselves). It is simple for one to claim the attribute of kindness, partially for the reason being that kindness is also based off of perception. What I see as kind, you may see as greedy, there is a problem with words; they can be perceived falsely, and can go un repaired if not addressed. In sake of argumentation, “kind” is referencing towards doing something extra and unexpected for someone other than yourself; being selfless. “I got you this just because” or “Sure, you can have $20”, these words place a mask of kindness onto those who speak them, but one can not view into a soul –> a mind. It is a grief possibility that these beings have become too accustomed to flaunting this mask, they seem to be kind; when what lays behind this mask could in fact be an alternative motive.

Politics are the clearest paradigm where alternative motives can be observable. The politician promises, smiles, reassures, reiterates, all in hopes of being chosen. Once this goal is attained, the politician suddenly remains complacent with these issues where there was once a drive, a fire; only to ad hoc hominem “My hands are tied with this issue”. I pose another form of example; The mother and father pride in dropping their children off every day for school, they see perfect attendance as an honorable award; when in reality, the parents are using the school as as daycare while they handle what needs to be done. And another, a dog obeys and seizes to use the house as a toilet, only so when the owner arrives back home, a treat will be presented to said dog. I am willful that one of these archetypes allow my point to be understood.

On the contrary, a plant. A plant performs it’s daily duties for the planet, it gets pollinated, breathes in Carbon dioxide, produces for the humans oxygen. One of the major necessities humans need to live relies on the plant. Is this a clear form of the kindness of your heart? Is a plant capable of possessing such a kindness?

A plant does not have a heart.

WILL; It is mere will of a plant which drives it to truly dmonstrate an act that does not souley benefit itself.

My expectancy is for you, fellow Truth Seeker, to stop relying on fallacy, and start awakening to reality. We as beings must cease with the contamination and infectious spread of lies!

We must begin to awaken and spread the TRUTH.

Women & the “BackSeat”

the-weeping-woman

I am a soul with a mind that is continuously engrossed with various topics. I appreciate a challenge in attempting to change my methods, but I can almost guarantee they will fall short. I do not write for your opinions or satisfaction… I right for a movement, an edification; I write for those who seek the Truth.

For as long as my mind can wonder, it seems pretty evident that women have always been in the backseat. Not put second to men, but instead put last completely. Positioned behind every minority, animal, and even historical document… women seem to not only be forgotten, but they are also continuously pushed and silenced from their thoughts, needs, and passions. Most upsetting of all, they were denied a VOICE.

Starting off as a part of the womb, girls are already being brainwashed into taking part in womanly duties. Example, once two parents discover the gender of their baby is female, they instantly begin to decorate the females room with pink, bows, princesses, little kitchen sets, cleaning supplies in toy format, they even go as far as to buy a “toy baby” to give to their own child. Females are basically thrown the demands of motherhood from the second of their birth. No one can argue that a female makes these choices for herself, a child in general can not even make up their minds when it comes to their choice in food, more less be able to make a choice to turn motherhood into playtime.

I see this everywhere, it is upsetting and despicable. Seeing a young female pushing a toy stroller with a toy baby in it. It is simply a form of manipulation… caused by the major toy companies. They have instilled into our minds that this type of behavior from small females is acceptable in today’s society. Instead of forcing these females to discover motherhood at a young age, why do we not place maps, blue prints, books, and pen/paper in their hands? Why must we remain conformed in a society that has always known “the women cooks, cleans, cares for the children… the men make the money and have all say so in the house”. I say no… NO MORE!

I do not know if this muddles anyone else’s minds… but I do intend for these words to inspire and awaken those women, young or old, to stand up and use the voice that they now have today! Thanks to remarkable women like Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony, women now are able to vote, work, attend school… and truly make something of yourselves. It is not the men who are suppressing women any longer, no.. it is WOMEN themselves! Do not fall into the ambush of the toy companies, the “traditional duties” that women are supposed to perform, or the complacency that sometimes men push onto women.

If you who are living today do not make use of the history and struggles women have gone through to get here… those who fought for this cause will have died in vain and women could possibly REMAIN in the backseat; not in their own lives… but the backseat of the World.

The Captivating Attainment of Libertarianism

liberty

“The Surest way to corrupt a youth is to instruct him to hold in higher esteem those who think alike than those who think differently.”

-Freidrich Nietzsche

An important trophy to hold in life is that of being an individual. By this, I mean to say that beings should be prideful with the concept of uniqueness. One shan’t strive to be uniformed to society, rather than to be the spark in the complacent world we reside in currently.

It is a rare instance that there are beings who strive to be different… there are even fewer beings that are just that way by birth (naturally). There is a major difference in trying to be an individual, than actually being one. Yes, you can argue the fact that one is an individual by birth, for the obvious reason that you leave your mother’s womb and are then expected to be your “own person” so to speak. This is not what I mean by individual however; those who think critically, speak up when oppressed, and lead the world to differentiate between uniformity and libertarian… are those that truly are Individuals.

Let us go deeper with this thought; to not be bothered, moved, or have your opinions changed by your surroundings is a difficult task to achieve in today’s society. Not for me, so I am not speaking from experience, but for several others. I state this for the reason being that too many individuals that I cross paths with, work with, read their pieces, or even over hear their conversations… all seem to correlate to the same tune. It seems too obvious that beings are fearful of liberation, of freedom, of the Truth.

We should all be focused on guiding our youth to embrace their individualities, rather than bury them deep down. Society needs to adapt and accept “different” better than it ever has before. We must begin to view “different” as intelligent, as a leader, as the Truth; & view Uniformity as bland, scared, and a letdown. Until this deed is done, the world will continue to have the misconception of what true liberty is… we will continue to suffer. We, the Seekers of Truth, need to comprehend the ability we posses to let our intuitionism guide us not only through life, but let it lead as the only way possible to live.

The Fault in Memory

memory

“Many a man fails to become a thinker for the sole reason that his memory is too good.”

-F. Nietzsche

There is a vast amount of beings that at several moments through out their life, experience an inexpedient urge from within. I would be fibbing to say that I am not one of these beings. Coming across the quote that is provided above for you, the fellow seeker of Truth, I began to contemplate on the sole reason behind the issue of this almost unexplainable feeling.

Some do not care that they are part of this uncongenial group of outcasts… others obsess and conform to the norm of the era. Whichever category fits you best, I hope my explanation and thoughts fill you with complexity and perplexed vibes. I am aware that I may not always see things as you… but if you are taking the time to concentrate on my thoughts, there is a possibility that I may be understood.

Memory is often looked at as something positive and ever lasting… I agree with only one of these statements &I will explain why. Memory is definitely everlasting (unless you suffer a traumatic experience where all memory is lost), it is what stores the good and bad times, it is per say, the mark in your mind that never fades. Sometimes you wish to forget certain instances… yet others you plead to recall forever.

The problem I have with memory and its permanency, is that we as beings, tend to get hung up and stuck with what is stored… even if it is WRONG. I can not agree with someone who is an “old school catholic” (for sake of example) that abides daily to the 10 commandments and does countless hail Mary’s daily. To me this routine is pointless and will not save you from your wrong doings. It is simply just a routine, something that comes from memory, that you believe will make you a better person. I can not sit with the fact that Christopher Columbus is the man who discovered America (although this is what we teach our youth). I will not be satisfied with society claiming that life is either black or white, or that humans are either man or woman. I am not someone who sees things so one sided.

I am a philosopher, I am a Thinker, I am a Truth Seeker… I will NEVER be held down by memory. For memory is one of the greatest downfalls society can encounter. Memory will restrict the levels of critical contemplation your mind could and should reach.. Nirvana, so to speak.

Do not be a complacent being who takes “facts” from others and simply memorizes them. This is not knowledge, this is not thinking. That, my fellow beings, is the greatest cop out one can take.

Stand up, question, be brave, & do not be held down by memory.

An Upsetting Contradiction –> Religion

pope benz

The Role of the Pope’s Duties: his priority lies in getting to know people, understanding how they live, listening to their interests and sharing their sufferings and their joys. The Pope is the unifier of the People of God, he is also the Prime Witness to Faith; This includes both preaching &teaching the word of God…

Basing my post off of this definition, I will now explain to you the anger, disgust, and contradictions I saw/experienced recently dealing with the current Pope (Francis) and his actions.

Now, I do not fully understand myself and why this image greatly upset me, I mean the Pope is no one to me… yet these actions he portrayed infused a spark of anger and vehement that was too impossible to subdue. I know we live in “America the Great” A.K.A. the leader of all Capitalistic societies.. but for the POPE to as well fall into the scheme of consumerism? Disappointment. I would like to hear from those who actually follow Pope Francis on a regulatory basis who would maybe be able to change my POV from negative to positive (although once my mind is made up it is concrete so your attempts might be worthless).

I do not know him nor claim to follow anything else he has ever done while being the Pope; But what I do know is the image of him parading around like a beauty queen on the top of Mercedes Benz… did not sit will with me to say the least.

Your thoughts & comments are always welcomed… my mind is constantly on a power trip.. thank you for taking the journey with me.
